Noah Sewakanu became the new chairman of the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT), Ogun chapter, on Wednesday with a promise to uphold the union’s ethics.

Mr Sewakanu took office as the new state chairman following the retirement of his predecessor, Abiodun Akinola.

Speaking at his inauguration in Imeko, Ogun, Mr Sewakanu pledged an open-door administration, stating that he would be an impartial leader of the union,

According to him, all union members will be given the opportunity to contribute to the growth and development of the union.

He said his administration would strengthen the relationship between the union and all education agencies in the state through consultation and consolidation.

The new chairman said the agencies include the Ministry of Education, State Universal Basic Education Board, Teaching Service Commission, principals, and the headmaster’s general office.

“I make this solemn declaration between me and God to be an impartial leader and hold the ethics and ethos of the union high in spirit. I am poised to re-orientate, reorganise and build on the good legacies of the past leaders in the union activities.

“Our leadership will run an open-door policy, whereby we will give all members leverage to contribute to the growth and development of our great union,” he said.

Earlier, Mr Akinola advised union members to give the new chairman maximum support, noting that he could not do it alone.

He gave the assurance that though he was retiring as a headteacher, he would not get tired of the union.

The immediate past chairman said he would continue to ensure that Sewakanu had a successful tenure.

Also, the NUT president, Titus Amba, advised the new chairman to follow the good path of his predecessor, who had a meritorious service.

Mr Amba, represented by NUT’s national social secretary, Titilope Adebayo, urged the new chairman to always carry other members along in union activities.
